Botran Solera 1893 is a dark rum from Guatemala aged using the Solera method in casks that previously held sherry, port and bourbon.
Solid performance from the manufacturer.
The smell is amazing, I love this fruity sweet aromas. It reminds me of Zacapa.
I can tell you, this is a good rum for small money. I think the most Zacapase are based on rums like Ron Botran 15 and Ron Botran 1893.
I have the old bottle, what a beauty for just 28€.
A fresh bottle is not that aromatic and has too much wood aroma. But after some months the rum gets better with oxygen in the bottle.
Smell: Caramel, herbs, fruits (mandarine), dried fruits (plum), some wood, vanilla, lard (very nicely balanced, not too sweet)
Taste: mandarine, caramel, herbs, burned sugar, toasted barrel (wood), nutmeg, spice.
Finish: earth/cask, spice, wood, bitterness
Aftertaste: typical sherry aftertaste, cherry compote, orange
Barrel: American white oak, whiskey, pot and sherry wine barrels
Material: Virgin Cane Honey
Un bon rhum, facile à trouver, accessible tant en terme de prix que de goût, pas de parti pris extrême... Je ne le trouve pas "épicé", contrairement à beaucoup, mais très équilibré, et facile à boire tout en ayant un réel plaisir.
Der Geruch des Ron Botran 1893 Solera ist gut, der Geschmack dagegen 0815. Positicv: nicht nachgesüßt, jedjeInsgesamtoch fehlt Frucht und v.a. Raffinesse. Insgesamt kein schlechter Rum, ohne großartige Ecken und Kanten, aber am ehesten zum Mixen geeignet.
This Solera Ron with distillate between 5 and 18 years old has a well balanced sweetness. In your nose you can feel oak, vanilla and caramel but also dried fruit. Then in your mouth you can together with above mentioned also feel some orange, I believe.
It’s also quite complex and a good budget priced Ron.
The flavor is similar to the higher level Botran Solera 18, only without the sherry aspect. A competent albeit boring molasses and wood, can extract burnt sugar when giving it a proper mouth wash.
The perfect aroma is promissing more than you get. First taste is alcohol kick and you must search for more layers and tones. The sweet is natural and pleasant, aftertaste not long and burning.
